Blog Protection Tips

Blog Protection Tips

1. Email Comment Notification

Configure your settings to enable Email Notification of all comments.

BENEFIT: You can see, within your email inbox, any comment spam or abusive comments that might be polluting your blog, and you can then quickly delete it.

2. Character Verification (or Math Calculation)

Comment poster must type into text entry box a series of letters and/or numbers (or the solution to a math problem) displayed against a visually noisy, distorting background.

BENEFIT: Spambots cannot identify the characters displayed, and are prevented from posting the spam comment.

3. Blog Template Saving

Copy and paste the code for the blog's main template into a text editor, such as NotePad, WordPad, StarOffice, MS Word.

BENEFIT: If the template is accidentally deleted or maliciously erased, it can be replaced.
